A sinking ship

Senior Software Engineer (Former Employee) Boise, ID

ProsLots of people, outside the company, remember the old HP, back when it was synonymous with quality and may afford one undeserved respect based upon that reputation.

There are some good middle managers left over from the past, though their numbers are thinning fast.

ConsA game of musical chairs based upon seniority and connections.

Innovation is dead, with the exception of acquisitions which are quickly assimilated into the borg and reduced to undersized, HP clone operations.

Training and career development are not part of the new HP. Why train when you can hire from the outside?

Advice to Senior ManagementDivest the company and break it back into a thousand pieces. The economy of huge scale isn't working for you or your employees.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros: Company seems to be headed back to valuing its technical workers. Still not clear where it is headed w/r to hardware or printers. … Cons: Product Design and R&D project investment decisions still being made… Advice to Senior Management: Good luck. This company has absorbed so many other companies, there is very little "HP" left. We are as much the personality of… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
